Clothes Moth (Identification and control in your home)

The term "clothes moth" is associated with the webbing clothes moth, casemaking clothes moth, and carpet moth. Generally, clothes moths are smaller in size compared to their relatives. While most moths can be seen flying around lights at night, clothes moths prefer the dark. They can usually be found in closet, attics and other dark areas. Many people believe the clothes moths itself are the ones who devour the fabrics but they are poorly mistaken. Adult clothes moths are unable to feed. Their larvae are the source of the fabric damages. Some of their favorite "meals" around the house are clothing, carpets, upholstery fabrics, blankets, wool products and silk products. Clothes moth larvae are also known to damage other products such as linen, synthetic fibers, cotton and paper. In addition, they especially like to feed on fabrics that have been stained with food, beverages, body oils, sweat, or even urine. They are attracted to these stains for a reason. Clothes moth larvae cannot survive eating "clean" wool because they require nourishment found in body oils.

How to Get Rid of Clothes Moths

Holes on clothing are the obvious signs of a clothes moth infestation. Preventative measures should always be practiced. Once a hole is made the damage is done and may not be repairable. These prevention methods include sanitation and insecticide measures. The process of sanitation includes vacuuming, airing, dusting and even dry cleaning (when need be).

Clothes Moth Treatments

Spray pesticides, for instance Demand CS, Suspend SC and Perma Dust are great for spot treatments. Some insecticides require dilution with water and are applied using a hand sprayer. Areas of major infestation should be concentrated upon. Most exterminators prefer applying a residual insecticide (such as Suspend SC) to all suitable areas and then follow up with a non residual insecticide (such as CB 80 Extra) for absolute control. This dual method approach is especially appropriate when damages are extensive. It is recommended to reapply treatments as needed to assure the total clothes moth control.

Clothes Moth Traps

Trapping is one of the most common ways to control a clothes moth infestation, not to mention one of the easiest ways. Pheromone traps are available and work great against clothes moths. Pheromone traps are recommended for any size clothes moth infestation. Simply place the trap(s) in a closet and any other areas where clothes and fabrics are stored. Not only does trapping allow you to detect the presence of an infestation but also provides great control.

Q. What product to get for DrywoodTermite and will you shipped to Hong Kong
My mother has an apartment (on the 9th floor) in Hong Kong and she found termites. I believe they are drywood termites and she is looking for a spray to prevent the termites from developing again. I wonder if you can recommend a strong product and easy to apply - just spraying at the spot will be great. I also wonder if you shipped directly to Hong Kong. Thanks for your help.
A.   Premise Foam seems like the product you are looking for! However, we are unable to ship the product to Hong Kong due to strict regulations on international shipping.
